I've been seeing the Titleist VG3 golf balls in some of the golf stores. I know they are made for the Japanese market, but what Titleist ball do they compare to in the US market?

Thanks Brad. What Titleist ball is it similar to on the US market?

What type of cover is on this ball? How is the greenside spin??

Brad, I have no idea if your are a Rep. for Titleist but I would like to know if the VG3 Golf Ball is a legal and conforming ball in the U.S. Best Wishes Chuck mactwochuck@aol.com

This Ball is compliant with USGA.  Go to USGA website and check for conforming balls and search for Titleist VG3.  It is there!

I picked some up at the store the other day and it feels like a NXT Tour. Im using them for practice balls.

The VG3 is like a hybrid cross between a Pro V and NXT tour series.


Sounds like they are worth a try, just ordered a dozen on ebay for $27.00 with shipping..


My VG3's just came, does anyone know if there is a difference is with red and black numbers ?? Thanks.

I have just received a dozen balls marketed as prov v1 but they are nothing like a pro V!.I can only assume they are fakes or japanese from a company called newgolfoutlet Malcolm

I starting using the VG3 a couple of months ago and love them. Very consistent distance due to lack of spin...a double-edged sword. I buy mine at Golfsmith where they are 23.95/dozen. The best value I have found in a ball in a while.

Hey Dan Got 2 doz sitting in my office waiting for the weathewr to warm up to get a good idea on this ball .. how do they play around the green I'm thinking not a lot bite ?

Thomas W

The VG3 bites and sticks like glue on firm greens. They will also spin off wedges when you lay the club flat on it's back and place the ball forward in stance.

Hey, What I'm looking to find out is what is the difference between VG3 RED, GREEN and BLACK? Thanks, Rich Fiori

I think the different colored numbers on titleist golf balls are a difference  in compression.  Somebody told me that because i had a pro V 1 with a red number and one with a black.

K.M. T

the red  numbering usually denote hard golf balls,while the black numbering  usually denotes soft golf balls, like in the case of 

Pro V1x (hard), ProV1(soft).This also usually holds good with other brands also.

Rich F

What about the Green number?

K.M. T

Well, Titleist and most other brands have Black (prov1-soft),Red(prov1x-hard).

Green,blue,golden brown etc:,are for  the Japanese and other Asian  brand of

golf balls.

I believe these Japanese golf balls  are really good golf balls and are as good as

Titleist and other brands,however they are expensive if they are Japanese,like all

Japanese golf equipment.
